I'll set out from Berkeley in late July; in late August and early September I will do a string of shows in the Northeast with Helen Zuman, a friend and compatriot from my days at Zendik Farm in North Carolina. Helen has just published a memoir about her years on the farm called "Mating in Captivity", a memoir about her Zendik experience; our joint events in New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New England will be part concert and part book launch. (Yes, we can come to your home! See below.) On my way to the East Coast and back, stops will include:
Nevada City, CA • Reno, NV • Boulder, CO • Tucson, AZ • Omaha, NE • Oaklahoma City, OK • Milwaukee, WI • Nashville, TN • YOUR HOUSE?
House concerts are a memorable way to enjoy music in an intimate setting with good friends and people you’d like to get to know better. I offer my concerts on a donation basis (guests pay what they wish, after the show). I work with you, the host, to create a fantastic event that suits you. If you have a living room, backyard, garage, deck, or other space that can accommodate twenty or so folks plus my keyboard, you’re ready to go! Check out these photos from last year’s gatherings to get a sense of what’s possible.
HOW TO HOST A HOUSE CONCERT
Invite 20 or more people who would love an evening of intimate music. The show will last no more than an hour, leaving ample time for mingling over drinks and snacks before and after.
Ask that your guests RSVP so you can plan accordingly.
State in your invitation that the performance is donation-based; do not specify an amount. This way, guests can give whatever feels right to them after the show.
